Review: Axe Cop: Bad Guy Earth

Axe Cop Bad Guy Earth issues 1-3

Yesterday I was on RRR’s Aural Text in my role as their occasional comic reviewer, saying nice things to the delightful alicia sometimes about Axe Cop: Bad Guy Earth, Dark Horse Comics’ three-issue series starring the eponymous cop-with-an-axe who became internet famous little more than a year ago as the star of a webcomic writen by 5-year-old Malachai Nicolle and drawn by his 29-year-old brother Ethan.

Axe Cop: Bad Guy Earth is an uncensored tour of a young boy’s frenetic imagination, ably complemented by his big brother’s intricate, deft and goofy illustration style, which effortlessly draws readers in and brings them along on the perpetually-stake-escalating journey.

Hard to pick a favourite moment in this comic, but if forced I’d capitulate and kind of cheat and say it was a toss-up between the battle between the vikings from the Planet of the Vikings and the baseball players from Planet Baseball (spoiler: the Vikings win, thanks to Axe Cop smuggling them a box of exploding baseballs), and the climactic battle where Axe Cop and his buddies, all smooshed together into one giant monster with all of their faces, fight the evil versions of themselves also all smooshed together into a giant monster with all of their faces.

As I say in the review, this comic is fun. Big, dumb fun. Have a listen, and check out the previews at Dark Horse Comics, or head over to http://axecop.com to experience Mr. Cop’s webcomic for yourself, the place where it all began.
